Central European University in Budapest, one of the most prestigious universities in this part of the world, is threatened to be closed down by the Hungarian authorities. A controversial law that discriminates against foreign schools was voted today by the Hungarian Parliament.
Universities may seem to be feeble institutions. But they aren’t. The core of academia is made of strong values like knowledge and enlightenment, values that people of all political beliefs hold high. Trying to silence academia is impossible and any war against it is lost from the beginning.
In this absurd assault on education, we, here at MSM Romania, stand with CEU.
